CelestineRap

Celestine was born and raised in Africa. As a youth he became a Christian and served as a singer and a dancer at his local church. In February 2002 he was prophesied over by a preacher who told him “God will send you to America to produce music that has never been produced before, you’ve been given a light, all you need to do is shine it and people will follow.” The prophecy became a reality when he was “randomly” selected to move to America as a permanent resident in October 2003 through a Visa lottery. After moving to America he discovered his passion is to liberate the oppressed through rap music and to educate his listeners on how they can help the poor around the world. In 2005 Celestine appeared on MTV Asia while working with a Record company in Bangkok Thailand. 2008-2009 Celestine worked as a Hip-Hop choreographer in elementary schools and high schools in Los Angeles including Watts Willow Brook high school in Compton. Celestine has worked with several different musicians and organizations that are passionate about ending injustices around the world. Celestine studied International Business at Cal State Los Angeles till 2009. He was in India 2009 shooting a music video to educate his listeners on the Redlight Districts in India. March 2011 he shot his 3rd music video “One Step At A Time”while partnering with Divog, an organization that build schools in the rural areas in Ghana Africa. Celestine’s heart is to CRY OUT for those that can’t cry out for themselves and to make a change in his community by partnering with others who have the resources and the passion to free those that are oppressed around the world. Celestine and His wife Tara are the founders of CryOut!: a non profit organization that mentors the youth while offering them music as an outlet. My first solo album "Justice Is Blind" took me about 7 years to produce. I pray that this music moves its listeners to change and to pursue change for the oppressed amongst us."
